BG Files Amicus Brief on Behalf of Military Veterans

Bailey Glasser filed an amicus brief supporting military families opposing arbitration sought by Citibank in the case Pablo Espin v. Citibank, N.A., currently pending before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. The Amici Curiae represented are the National Guard of the United States, the Military Officers Association of America, and the Reserve Organization of America. This case involves a proposed class of military members who are arguing that Citibank cannot force them to arbitrate claims the bank overcharged credit card fees, arguing federal laws on military-member lending negate arbitration agreements.

ERISA Practice Group Leader and former veteran Greg Porter stated: “We are proud to support military families in opposing Citibank’s efforts to force their claims into arbitration. As a veteran who served overseas, I understand the challenges that military families face when members are serving outside the country.”

Greg served four years in the United States Army, including 18 months on the demilitarized zone in Korea where he was part of the Joint Security Area forces in Pan Mun Jom. We thank Greg and all veterans for their service.
